If you're in the market for a large-screen phone that can handle your extensive usage then there are two names that you must have come across - the iPhone XS Max and Galaxy Note 9. Both giants offer magnificent super-sized screens, powerful processing and beefed-up specifications.
But when it comes down to it, which one do you actually choose? We bring you an iPhone XS Max vs Galaxy Note 9 comparison that might help you make a decision.
iPhone XS Max vs Galaxy Note 9: Design
The iPhone X, with its all-new bold and attractive design, changed the smartphone game when it came out in 2017. And the iPhone XS Max, which is Apple's largest phone to date, just makes it bigger and better. The new handset retains the all-glass look of its predecessor with an edge-to-edge display, surrounded by negligible bezels and a small notch on the top, and a beautiful glass-covered back. The device is bordered by a stainless steel frame that adds to the appeal.
The Galaxy Note 9 by no means looks any less elegant. The bezel on each side of the screen remains thin, although the top and bottom chin are a bit wider than the iPhone XS Max, with Samsung still not choosing to adopt the controversial 'notched'-design. The screen merges smoothly with the glass back, giving the phone a curved feel as compared to XS Max's boxed look.
The iPhone XS Max houses a dual-camera on the top left of its rear side while the camera on the Galaxy Note 9 is placed centrally. Below it is the fingerprint sensor, something which is missing from the iPhone XS Max altogether. Another differentiating design factor is the presence of a headphone jack on the Galaxy Note 9.
Just to give you an idea of the actual dimensions, the iPhone XS Max measures at 157.5 x 77.4 x 7.7 mm and weighs 208 grams while the Galaxy Note 9 has dimensions of 161.9 x 76.4 x 8.8 mm and weighs 201 grams. Both phones are also IP68 water resistant.
One thing to note is that both the phones' heavy reliance on glass do leave them vulnerable to damage and it only makes sense that you invest in a good phone case to help prevent that.
iPhone XS Max vs Galaxy Note 9: Display
It would be fair to say that both smartphones sport a magnificent display and it would be tough to pick one over the other. Despite being smaller in size, the iPhone XS Max packs in a larger display size of 6.5-inches. The AMOLED screen has a resolution of 2688 x 1242 pixels and a density of 458 ppi. It has True Tone colour output and supports HDR 10 as well as 3D touch.
The Galaxy Note 9 has a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED screen but offers a better resolution of 2960 x 1440 pixels and density of 516 ppi. Boasting of 16 million colours and HDR 10 support, the display is sharp, bright and accurate.
iPhone XS Max vs Galaxy Note 9: Camera
The iPhone XS Max comes equipped with a dual-lens rear camera comprising of a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with ƒ/2.4 aperture and a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens with ƒ/1.8 aperture. Both feature optical image stabilisation while supporting 2x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom.
Apple's new A12 processor has made the camera system smarter with standout features like Smart HDR, that lets the system capture multiple shots and merge them into one to give better highlights and shadows, and depth control, that lets you change the depth of the field after you've taken the shot.
The Galaxy Note 9 also sports a 12-megapixel dual lens system with one snapper having a fixed aperture of ƒ/2.4 while the other one has a variable aperture between ƒ/1.5 and ƒ/2.4. Similar to XS Max, both lenses support optical image stabilisation as well as 2x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom.
The Note 9 camera is especially adept at shooting in low-light conditions while the company claims that the AI-enabled features such as the noise reduction algorithm make it impossible to take a bad picture.
On the front, the iPhone XS Max has a 7.7-megapixel camera with TrueDepth capabilities used for the Face ID unlocking and Animoji. The Note 9 comes with an 8-megapixel front camera with ƒ/1.5 aperture.
iPhone XS Max vs Galaxy Note 9: Hardware and Software
Battery life is a bone of contention in any smartphone comparison and its imperative we touch on that. The Galaxy Note 9 has the larger battery of the two, measuring at 4,000 mAh, as compared to the 3,400 mAh battery of iPhone XS Max. Both phones should easily last a day of regular usage. Wireless charging and fast charge are supported on each phone.
The iPhone XS Max is powered by the Apple A12 processor, one of the first 7nm chips. Processing capabilities have been Apple's strong point and it carries over to the XS Max which runs as smooth as silk. The Galaxy Note 9 will come with the Snapdragon 845 processor if you're in the US or China while it will run on the Exynos 9810 if you buy it outside of the two countries. To make the performance better, Samsung has included a special water carbon cooling system in Note 9.
Talking about RAM, the iPhone XS Max features a 4 GB one while the Note 9 offers two options of 6 GB and 8 GB. But this doesn't necessarily translate to faster speed in the Note 9 since iOS and Android devices manage memory differently.
The Galaxy Note 9 comes with Android Oreo 8.1 out of the box and you'll have to wait till January 2019 to update the OS to Android 9 Pie. The device also supports the S Pen. The iPhone XS Max operates on the iOS 12, which features improved notifications and battery management as well as augmented reality support.
iPhone XS Max vs Galaxy Note 9: Price
Both smartphones are one of the most expensive ones. The iPhone XS Max starts at $1,099 (£1,099) for the 64 GB model and goes up to $1,449 (£1,499) for the 512 GB model. The Galaxy Note 9 is comparatively cheaper - $1,000 (£899) for 128 GB model and $1,249 (£1,099) for the 512 GB model.
As we can see, it can be really hard to choose between the phones with each device offering excellent specs. It will eventually boil down to what features you prefer and how much you're willing to pay for them.
Are you confused about how to choose a suitable PDF editor for your company or for you personally? When you search on Google "The best PDF editor", online edition, free edition, desktop edition and other such dazzling words usually appear in front of you. Adobe is indeed the industry's most recommended PDF editing software, but it's expensive and many of the features are such that you will likely never be able to use them ever and that's why it may not be a smart choice. Below, I will teach you how to pick the PDF editor that works best for you.
First of all, you need to figure out what you need from you PDF editor, but in general, the perfect PDF editing software should have the following ten features.
At present, a lot of documents are in PDF format, such as essays, e-books, contracts, etc. Many people use PDF software in order to have a better reading experience. A good software should let you choose a different reading mode, zoom in and out of the page, jump to a specific page and of course, you can also take screenshots, insert bookmarks, etc., which are good for the user's PDF reading experience.
Still a considerable number of people prefer to use Word to write documents and then create a PDF file from it. Office currently has the ability to export from Word to PDF, but it is worth noting that this feature is only available in 2010 and above. So, having a professional PDF software will do more with less and you will be able to quickly create PDF files of various formats without breaking the source document format.
We need to pay attention to the conversion support format and conversion quality. A lot of software claims to be able to maintain one hundred percent of the same format conversion, but in fact, very few actually do. Therefore you must try the conversion process first before selecting the software.
In fact, some of the top PDF editing features are now comparable to Word. For example, while using the following software, editing functions are complete and the operation is very smooth, giving users almost the illusion of using Office.
It is also important to comment on the PDF file. During the reading process, you will encounter some important points or areas that need to be modified. The annotation at this time is very important. As shown in the picture, PDF software gratifies you to do different kinds of annotations.
OCR helps you to identify scanned documents and images, as well as allowing conversion to editable text. As OCR technology is becoming more and more mature, with the implementation of the OCR, you can modify things that cannot be modified.
If you need to fill out the form, then be sure to try PDF form recognition and fill function, because some software cannot fully identify everything that it needs in order to fill the form in. Good form function can help you identify, fill in and modify the form.
8. Signature and protection
If you need to sign PDF files, then pay attention to this feature. In addition, good PDF software can better encrypt your documents, so that no information leakage occurs.
Page adjustment and management of PDF software is also a major function. You should be able to extract, insert, split, replace the page, delete pages and so on.
After creating, editing and converting finished PDF files, you should also be able to print or share your documents with ease.
If you choose a software where all the above PDF software features are available, Congratulations! You found the perfect PDF editing software. Next, you have to compare the user experience. Interface UI design, smooth operation, the user's habits and other features that greatly affect the user experience and work efficiency. As you can see from this software, the interface UI design is easy to understand, you do not need to invest too much time learning how to use everything, It's as easy as using office, because no matter from the color, button and function switch looks like, all fit the habit of most users using Office. Once you use it, you will appreciate the fluidity and the speed, please also feel free to check out our online pdf unlock program.
Finally, consider your budget, because everyone likes a cost-effective option. If software is meeting your functional needs and the price is appropriate, then quickly buy it! All screenshots of this article come from PDFelement 6 Pro, which you can also download for as free trial. It's $59.95 for the base edition and $99.95 for the pro edition.
If it feels like donkeys ago that Google officially launched Android 8.0 Oreo, that's because it was - the announcement was made way back at the end of August '17.
And although it's already been rolled out on Google devices, the rest of us using non-Google smartphones are likely going to have to wait until the start of next year, according to most predictions.
It may be frustrating but it's no real surprise. Android isn't exactly renowned for quick updates, after all (the previous update, Nougat, is still only running on just 17.8% of devices a year after its release).
To help tide you over, we're running through a few of the key new features and improvements Android 8.0 Oreo is set to bring when it finally arrives. Take a look.
A boosted battery life
Whether you're playing online games on the likes of Casinomir and right near a big win, or in the middle of composing an important work email, there's nothing more frustrating than having your battery die on you.
According to Google, it's a nightmare situation that will soon become a thing of the past for Android users. Yup, the Google gods have heard your curses and your prayers, and Oreo, with its focus on improving battery life, is their answer.
How's it managing to accomplish this awe-inspiring feat? Well, mostly by cleverly limiting battery-draining background processes and apps that are not essential to your current activity.
From hackings to harmful malware, there are plenty of nasty dangers waiting to corrupt your smartphone.
Oreo hopes to put your mind at rest with a new and improved security feature called Google Play Protect. It will update automatically, continually monitor your phone for threats or risks and take action to resolve them (by removing risky apps, for example).
It evens boasts a Safe Browsing feature for Chrome which will warn you of any dodgy sites or pop-ups as you browse the internet.
Other notable features
Android 8.0 Oreo also boasts a range of handy streamlining features to help you save some valuable time, including:
· Android Instant Apps - instead of waiting for apps to download before deciding whether you actually need them, this feature lets you use them online through your browser instead.
· Autofill API - fed up of manually typing in your email and passwords? Or are you that person that's continually forgetting their password? New autofill capabilities help you quickly log in to your favourite apps without all the hassle of manually putting in your details.
· Accessibility - simplified audio controls and new quick access options on the navigation bar for things like magnification are added bonuses.
We're also being treated to some new emojis (apparently these will include a fairy and a mermaid, amongst others), notification dots on apps in the homescreen and new downloadable fonts.
All in all, with a few much-needed security and battery improvements alongside some handy visual changes, there's a lot to look forward to with Android 8.0 Oreo. It seems as though the wait will be worth it, you'll be pleased to know.
